If you think Blackberry battery life is poor you should check out the other devices out there. For example, there's a reason why the Blackjack comes with two batteries. Windows mobile devices certainly aren't any better.
I don't see why people don't charge nightly. Do you really need to use your Blackberry when you're sleeping anyway?
My usage isn't really comparable to yours but I don't close my apps (other than hitting escape to exit the browser), I leave Bluetooth on all the time and my battery never even reaches 50% according to the meter. I don't talk much on my BB even though it's the only wireless device I carry. My web browsing and usage of IM is pretty minimal.
To check your OS version, go to Options->About.
